Shakshuka, the Middle-Eastern delight, where eggs are poached in a tomato-based dish, has been taken to the next level in this recipe by the addition of courgetti – which took the world by storm from dieters, low-carbers and those gluten-intolerant folks looking for a healthy alternative to spaghetti. Thankfully, there is no need for a spiralizer, as most supermarkets sell them ready-made these days (which is pretty eggciting), so all you need to do is follow this super-simple, low-calorie recipe and you will be Middle-Feasting on this perfect meat-free Monday supper in no time at all.
